Episode Summary

EDIT

It's planting season in Hooterville, but Oliver doesn't know what to grow. After testing the soil, he discovers Hooterville is perfect for growing rutabagas. The locals are overcome with rutabaga fever, going so far as to plan a "Rutabaga Bowl". To spread the word, Lisa is sent up in a hot air balloon to drop vegetables on people with the message "Eat Hooterville Rutabagas" written on them.

    • The town gets carried away with their rutabaga plans: Newt Kiley calls Sophia Loren and asks her to be the Rutabaga Queen, Fred Ziffel calls CBS asking them to send their color cameras, and Roy Trendell calls U.S.C. to ask their team to play in the Rutabaga Bowl.

    • Oliver: You realize that last year every farmer in this valley lost money!
      Kimball: Well, there's a simple solution to that. Move out of the valley.
      Oliver: We don't want to move!
      Kimball: Well, you're just going to have to get used to losing money. Anything else I can help you with?

    • Lisa: (before the balloon lifts off) Suppose I get a leak in the bag?
